Kids receiving services through Children’s Home Society of Florida have some additional challenges on their first day of school. But just like we did, they want a new outfit, a cool backpack, shoes that fit, shiny folders, new pens, glasses so they can see the board, and they want to fit in with their friends. Please join and help them have a great first day and every day after – with the right tools so they are confident, ready to learn and focused on success!
Children’s Home Society of Florida’s biggest need is gift cards so they can fulfill the unique needs of every child on the first day of school and into the school year. That might mean new shoes, jeans, a backpack, special scientific calculator, lab fees, flash drives, sporting equipment, field trip or registration fees. Please share this information with family, friends, colleagues, civic groups and anyone else who wants to change the lives of local kids.
All items should be delivered to the offices of Children’s Home Society of Florida building no later than Friday 8/9. Location address and contact information:
Main phone: (850) 921-0772
1801 Miccosukee Commons Drive
Tallahassee, FL 32308
Confirm your participation and Children’s Home Society will celebrate you on their Facebook page and in other media. A gift in kind receipt for charitable donations will also be attached and can be submitted for accounting and tax documentation.
Thank you for helping local kids have a GREAT first day and every day of school!
